|Email item||Print item||
The Santa Marija Tower, Comino is now open for the season until the end of October, and Din L-Art Helwa said that its volunteers will be on hand to share their enthusiasm for the Tower and Comino.
Visitors to the tower can not only enjoy the experience of stepping back to the time of Grand Master Wignacourt, who built the tower in 1618, but also to take the opportunity to explore this gem of an island in its spring mantle of greens and yellows.
The Santa Marija Gun Battery, built in 1714, which stands sentinel over the Gozo Channel is open at all times to visitors.
DLH said that the Comino Tower is normally open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays, when the flag is flying. Entrance is by donation; children are free. Group bookings can also be made by contacting on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whilst exploring Gozo, DLH said why not also visit Dwejra Tower and Ta’ Sopu Tower, Nadur, the latter being open on request. www.dinlarthelwa.org
